Executive coaching (also known as Leadership Coaching) is a personalised and collaborative relationship between a team member, often a senior leader, and an accredited professional or executive coach. The work focuses on a series of predetermined outcomes and developmental goals. These may include adjusting to a new role, managing complexity or uncertainty, developing leadership skills, performance and coping with stress or delegation, or solving any personal or interpersonal issues in the workplace.
Executive Coaching is approached as a strategic method by employers for their staff and evidence suggests it is highly beneficial to both the employee and company. We would be pleased to arrange a complimentary consultation with our Co-Director and Senior Executive Coach, Dan Auerbach to learn more about your needs.

How does Executive Coaching Work?
Executive coaching is conducted as a series of one-on-one sessions, both in person or via video consultation. Each coaching relationship is planned around the specific needs of the client and is customised to assist the personal strengths and objectives of the employee.
Our business coaches are all experienced and accredited professionals, who incorporate evidence-based diagnostic and self-awareness tools.
Upon request, cursory feedback and recommendations for future support from the coach can be provided to the employer, subject to the staff member’s permission. Whilst the sessions are not subject to the same confidentiality standards as a counselling or psychology session, disclosures made by the employee can be kept private upon request.
“Your guidance has been invaluable to me in my personal life and the way I communicate with people in my work life. You have prompted me to look at myself in a different way and react in different ways.“
